Most of you never been and never will go
To Barcelona
So I have to tell you what I now know
About Barcelona

'Cause I met a woman there and went to her room
In Barcelona
By that thoughtless act I did map my own doom
Oh oh Barcelona

'Cause you see, my wife and I we had gone there together
To Barcelona
And if I wanted to kill love I couldn't have done better
Oh oh Barcelona

Back in our hotel, she cursed and she screamed
Barcelona
So I threw her out the window to quiet her screams
Oh oh Barcelona

But she lived to divorce me and later in life
Barcelona
Now she found a good husband, but I found no wife
Oh oh Barcelona

Now I live alone and I reminisce often
About Barcelona
Until finally God's mercy calls me in my coffin
Oh oh Barcelona

Oh oh Barcelona
Oh oh Barcelona
Oh oh Barcelona
Oh oh Barcelona

(And in my coffin was laid a lot of women
Making the body an instrument of curse
And as the world rotted, dissolved into dirt
So well it ended my ability to hurt
She walked on me, her children played on me
But eventually I was gone and happy)

    General CommentCheers for taking the time to add the lyrics, although there are a few changes I think should be made, particularly to the last segment.

    I believe it reads:
    And my coffin was made of wood
    Making the body an instrument of good
    And as the wood rotted, dissolved into dirt
    So with it ended my ability to hurt
    She walked on me, her children played on me
    But eventually I was gone and happy
